Selkirk Lodge – Day 5 and 6 – Oasis, Balls of Chrome, Marten, Pink Attempt

Day 5 was again overcast with low vis so we skied Lodge Run, Oasis, Balls of Chrome and Marten. More good pow! Day 6 suckered us in with ok vis in the morning so we attempted a Classic Selkirk Lodge run – Pink. It looked good to the top, then we dropped in and got shut down. TONS of snow on the backside, almost too much! If we could have seen it would have been good, but alas the skies did not cooperate and we had to climb back out and head back into the trees.

Dropping into the backside… not so much.

TONS of snow and low vis makes for tough skiing

Our tracks that you could see when the clouds cleared for two minutes.

Marco went down a bit further, then called it and had to come back up.
